Example of a lecture in LaTeX - Wednesday, 12 August 2009

To make the procedure of publishing a book (with all the lectures given during the conference) easier we ask the speakers to provide - till the Workshop time - the full text of their presentation in a TeX file similar to the one that is in a file example.tex.

Preamble of a lecture given in English can be found in a file warszt_preamble_en.tex. The preamble can be included with a command input.

We ask you not to change the preamble. If you want to give any additional definitions, please do it in your own file.

Useful files:

Of course, lectures written in a different form will be accepted as well. :)
